I love Back Flip by Sam Schwartz. It is a great packet trick and the final colour change really catches people off guard. Also with a little thinking it resets automatically.


I only learned about this trick this year. I agree, it is a great trick. I love stumbling across recommendations and then finding you have the book associated with the effect.

I didn't know about this trick, and I agree, it's great to find out you already have the trick's explanation. Coincidentally, I had just been looking at Daryl's DVD Fooler Doolers Volume 3 for another purpose, and he explains the trick there. I was reminded again what a funny and personable performer he was.


For the final change to green cards I thought of using a line like, "Last time I performed this it was on a boat in rough waters. The cards turned green."


So many great packet tricks, so little time!

Bob

P. S. Thanks, Stickmondoo, for recommending this one.

Daryl’s version of Back Flip has a great surprise ending. It’s on one of the World’s Greatest Magic videos

Personally I love packet tricks in which the cards change colours. The more dramatic the change the better.

My favourite is Alex Emsley’s Dazzle. A truly amazing trick. Unfortunately the card set required for this is very hard to come by. Nick Trost has a nice version called Razzle Dazzle with a simpler set up.
